2001 Colpetrone Sagrantino di Montefalco

SKU #1015461

3 Glasses Gambero Rosso and 90 points Wine Spectator: "Lots of blackberry, wet earth and some green pepper character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a chewy finish. Lots going on here. Best ever from here. Best after 2006." (12/04) 89 points Wine Enthusiast: "Smoke, leather, gingerbread and cake aromas and flavors are found in this wine from enologist Lorenzo Landi who oversees winemaking at all Saiagricola properties. Intense, drying tannins make this wine difficult to pair with most foods now, but just wait a few years." (09/05) K&L's notes - One of the best Sagrantino's I've ever tasted, balanced, rich, full of complex fruit, long finish, cellar worthy and drinkable now! (Greg St.Clair K&L's Italian Wine Buyer)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
